The Texas Tech Red Raiders are headed to Omaha for the third time in five years after beating Duke 6-2 Monday night at Rip Griffin Park.
Tech needed three games to defeat the Blue Devils, but the Red Raiders got the job done. Now, they’ll try to win the first baseball championship in school history. Coach Tim Tadlock has been at Texas Tech for only five years, meaning he’s made Omaha in 60 percent of his seasons with the Red Raiders. What’s even more impressive is that those three trips are the only College World Series trips in school history.
As expected, Texas Tech fans were jubilant following the conclusion of Monday’s game. Here’s a look at the best of the best from Twitter:
